How often does a radio technical guy get his own write-up in a big-city newspaper?

“Quietly sitting above and behind the radio sports announcers, spotters and producer, Mel Check watched the Pitt Panthers play the Syracuse Orangemen while keeping an eye on the people in front of him.”

He is the subject of a profile in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. A former long-time employee of KDKA, Check does contract sports broadcasting and runs a booking service that helps networks find engineers for sports broadcasts.
